. >>> this afternoon the obama administration weighed-in on the situation in egypt raising a number of concerns. let's go to cnn white house correspondent dan lothian. dan. >> reporter: joe, one of those concerns is about too much power in the hands of one person. we look back a few months ago it was unclear whether egypt was an ally of the u.s. now a senior administration official saying a relationship of trust has developed between president obama and president morsi. but as we know in any relationship things can get complicated. at the white house, a sense of calm kicking off the holiday season with the arrival of a 19-foot christmas tree. >> it is perfect. it's exactly what we needed. >> reporter: while the president headed to the golf course at joint base andrews. but the white house is closely watching developments in egypt. protests, violent at times and anger over what some see as president morsi's power grab, as declarations preventing any court from overturning his decisions. >> ilt appears the timing is curious. he's gotten this bump particularly for his role in mediating the cease-fire f
the new egyptian pharaoh. he's concerned and says the obama administration, particularly president obama and secretary of state hillary clinton have to be much tougher than they've been. they've been almost silent so far, and come out strongly this week in condemning morsi's power grab and in effect threaten them with u.s. military aid, economic aid. a debt forgiveness deal. so there's a lot of leverage and we have to start using it. >> he's also as many others are keeping a close eye on the benghazi investigation. he would in favor of a consolidated investigation into what happened. >> what he basically says is you have senate intelligence and homeland security and senate armed services and duplication of those on the house side. he said what we need a one super investigation, one super committee, and he and lindsey graham compared it to a watergate style committee. we had the top republican on senate intelligence, and they said we don't need that, we can do it with the standing economist. i'm not sure 0 there's a critical mass from democrats ane the creation of a special committee. i t
that -- at the top. you would think that the obama administration would have bought their own tweet. >> brown: howie, what is the administration asking its supporters to do through this tash tag? i mean, is it just to get the word out or is there something more explicit? >> well, it's all about mobilizing public opinion which is easier to do when n a campaign when off clear choice-- barack obama or mitt romney. with the romney campaign having evaporated the democrats have an advantage on this. so obama for america, the digital group that was created to help get president obama elected to a second term has sent out an e-mail with graphics to its supporters on millions of people oner, the mail list urging them to get involved on the president's proposals and to share some of this information with their friends. >> brown: we're taking a look at that now. so that's, lauren, part of this -- this is what you're talking about, the permanent campaign. >> it just never stops. they're saying share this with your friends. make a youtube video, post it on your facebook and your e-mail. the question really comes
of the palestinian people in rama la, i don't think you will see the obama administration open up some kind of relationship with hamas unless hamas renowns violations and, violence and terrorism. >> i don't think you can expect, that is not going to happen. >> why not? >> well for one thing i becauset is seen as resistance occupation, they continue their occupation and the palestinians have to stand quietly well, i think the palestinians would be well-advised to renowns violence. >> hamas chart search not important, if they say we are willing to negotiate that should be enough you should see what the deal is and let them put it to a palestinian -- >> rose: is hosni prepared to negotiate through the palestinian party. >> they say yes, they are not allowed to form a unity government but that is not wanted in washington. >> rose: because of the arab spring and because of iran and because of leaving damascus and all kind of things so hamas, whatever happens here, has come out a better place within the palestinian community, dennis? >> well, there certainly is a different place because there is
to be a foreign policy achievement for the obama administration. many problems remain in the volatile of the tough neighborhoods. here is ed henry. >> president obama has a lot riding on the outcome in the middle east. violence flaring up weeks before the start of the second term. he was on the phone again today with two leaders he has a complicated relationship with. egyptian president mohammed morsi and israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu. the president getting netanyahu to agree to the tentative cease-fire with the carrot of additional u.s. funding for iron dome and other missile defense progra programs. >> i have agreed we will fight weapons of terror. >> u.s. and israel knows they send the rockets to hamas through egypt, which is why the president is using more of a stick in the conversation with morsi. today, hillary clinton praising and pushing morsi, member of the muslim brothe brotherhood. >> this is a critical new moment. they are assuming the responsibility of the leadership that made the country corner stone of the regional stability and peace. >> israeli officials are blunter. p

. in the meantime, the obama administration has commended israel for agreeing to the egyptian cease-fire proposal which was announced after delivery clinton met with egyptian leaders. what happens if it doesn't hold? and what is really happening here politically? monica crowley is a radio talk show host in the middle east and kiersten powers is a columnist. both are fox news contributors. i want to start with you, monica, because you know a lot about the middle east. usually you don't send the secretary of state over until you are pretty close to a deal. now it appears a deal has been reached. it was reported earlier that it was unusual for the israelis to agree to a cease-fire on the day of a bus bombing. when the attack had been ramped up to that level. nonetheless, they have done it. he spoke with him directly to encourage him to take the deal and he has. but what you think is going on? >> time will tell as to the durability of this cease-fire. time always does tell in the middle east and a breakdown sooner rather than later. we shall see. but you are right. jennifer is right to say that the i
of controversy over the obama administration's message on the death of four americans in libya. many people think u.s. ambassador to the united nations susan rice passed on misleading information about the attack in defending herself, rice is going after some of her high-profile critics in congress. >> i have great respect for senator mccain and his service to our country. i always have and i always will. i do think that some of the statements he's made about me have been unfounded, but i look forward to having the opportunity at the appropriate time to discuss all of this with him. gregg: senator lindsey graham is a republican senator from south carolina. he joins us now on the telephone. senator, thanks for taking a few moments. in calling senator mccain's criticism of her unfounded, is ambassador rice wrong? >> well, here's what motivates senator mccain and myself. what happened in benghazi before, during and after, how did it become a death trap, why wasn't it closed, the conflict closed or reinforced, why couldn't you help these poor people for eight hours on 9/11, a day of heightened securi
's role is so important. after four years of basically neglecting the peace process, the obama administration now has in some ways an opportunity to move in and create not just a sense of calm or temporary cease-fire but actually to take the first steps in dealing with israel's security as well as the issue of the blockade of gaza. if she can move through phase one in the cease-fire, phase two, then deal with those immediate concerns, that then opens the way for what everyone is expected since ironically her husband got close to a peace agreement 12 years ago in camp david. everyone knows what the ultimate formula is going to be. this is a moment where the situation begs for a bigger solution than just another temporary cease-fire that opens the way as alan dershowitz says for something four years down the road. >> let's hold that thought. let's have a quick break, come back and talk about the big picture solution. hi, could you read my list? it's all crossed out... it's 'cause i got everything on it. boom! thank you!

with palestinian officials in the west bank today, but will not be going to gaza. on tuesday, the obama administration blocked a u.n. security council resolution on the gaza conflict seng fell to address the root cause of palestinian rocket fire. among the latest palestinian victims were three palestinian journalists killed in their vehicle in gaza. after the attack, hamas government spokesperson condemned the killings of palestinian journalists. >> the israelis are going insane. they lost their minds. they're killing our children, killing our civilians, targeting everything today, targeting journalists. they tried all kinds of crime wars or war crimes, actually. >> tuesday marked the third consecutive day of israeli attacks on palestinian media. in separate incidents, israeli strikes also damaged gaza buildings housing offices of two media outlets. in other violence inside gaza, six men accused of being spies for israel were publicly executed in gaza city on tuesday, one of the bodies was dragged through the streets. at least one young child was among the 31 palestinians reportedly kil
live at the white house for us now. jennifer, what are we hearing from the obama administration? nothing from the president or the secretary of state yet. earlier in the week the white house released this photograph of the president on the phone with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu encouraging him to accept a cease-fire with hamas brokered by the egyptian president. today the state department issues this off camera statement about egypt, quote: one of the as aspirations of the revolutions was that power would not be overly concentrated in the hands of any one person or institution it did not mexico president morsey by name or the coo he engineered two days after meeting secretary of state clinton in cairo, jon. >> jon: was a significant move from president morsey, why now? >> essentially because he was elevated during this past week with the cease-fire agreement he was seen to be a peace maker, a power broker by both the u.s. and israel. >> he must feel now with all the international acclaim that he has got a free hand and so within a matter of days he just begins to c

to be his special envoy and the united states spent two years and the obama administration, some political capital, trying to broker a negotiation between mahmoud abbas and prime minister netanyahu and ultimately was not successful. i do agree over the past couple of years, there's been a pause in the peace process, you know, to try to see if conditions, you know, could be created to bring us back to a negotiating table. but i would also say that, you know, it's -- the environment today is much different than it was even four years ago. you have had the arab spring and everyone that's involved in this is doing careful recalculations of their strategic interests and that's even going on i think in the heart of the negotiations that are ongoing for a cease-fire. >> just to follow up, are you implying too many visits just means it's a bad situation there? >> well, you'll recall, the environment between 2003 and 2008, you know, the united states was involved in an act of war in the middle east. so again, the agenda to some extent drives, you know, where a secretary of state spends the bulk of
anybody from being confirmed as secretary of state in the second term of the obama administration, because according to john mccain, u.n. ambassador susan rice, who's a likely candidate for secretary of state, she once said something wrong on the sunday shows. in the days after the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, back in september, susan rice went on the sunday shows and gave the administration's intelligence agency-approved talking points, explaining what the administration thought at that time had happened in benghazi. and that, in john mccain's view, is unforgivable. >> maybe she could start out by publicly coming back on this show and saying, i was wrong. i gave the wrong information on your show some several weeks ago. that might be a beginning. >> but until then, john mccain will block her potential nomination. and anybody's nomination. no secretary of state for the united states of america until john mccain is satisfied. susan rice, for the record, did not give wrong information on the sunday shows. she described accurately what the intelligence agencies were advising her
. >>> the obama administration clearly played a crucial role in encouraging israel to agree to the ceasefire with hamas. wolf spoke with shimon peres about relations with the united states and peres' longevity on the world stage. here is some of wolf's interview in jerusalem. >> you remember during the american presidential campaign the republican nominee, mitt romney, accused president obama of throwing israel under the bus. >> well, let's look at the facts. israel is not under the bus. the fact is that president obama, and we shall not forget it, helped us to find us those missiles. and security -- we asked them. they responded positively. and is the president of the united states. we enjoy the support of the two parties. and it is -- and i don't want to say anything against candidate romney any time. but we are not taking parts in the american campaign. and we are lucky to have the support of the two parties. and until -- it's hard to become the president of the united states. and i met all the presidents for the last 50 years, republicans and democrats. i must say, most of them are excee
for the obama administration and what in the long term? ite many important to consider -- it's important to understand this means iran is still on the march. why did hamas attack israel now? one objective was to draw israel into a broader war and get egypt to rescind its treaty with israel. and also giving it arms to attack israel. iran wants to put israel back on its heels and it wants to distract from its own nuclear weapons program and the proxy war it's fighting in syria. it changed the topic. we still have a dangerous regime and dangerous ideology of islamicism, the chief proponents which is the iranian regime. nothing in this cease-fire addresses that unfortunately. heather: what about in terms of what this means in terms of our relationship with egypt moving forward? >> a lot of people see this as a positive development which is unfortunate. egypt still has an islamist government that won very narrowly 52-48. it's very anti-israel and anti-american. it talks about restoring the caliphate in jerusalem. they are ready to re -- they can learn from pakistan that basically you can take

there. jennifer, thank you. jon: right now new questions for the obama administration and its changing story on what happened during the benghazi terror attack. top republicans on capitol hill want the nation's top intelligence official to explain what they say is his co conflicting testimony from the original talking points that seemed to minimize the chances that this was a terror attack. the director of national intelligence told officials in closed doors that no one in the intelligence community edited out any referral to terrorism. monday night they said it was the intelligence community that made substantive changes to the talking points. which is it? four americans died in that benghazi attack including our ambassador chris stevens. chris wallace the anchor of ""fox news sunday"" joins us now. chris, there seems to be conflicting information from the director of national intelligence and republicans say they want to get to the bottom of it. >> it's more than seems to be it apparently absolutely is conflicting. when you said which is it i hope you're not looking to me for an answ
. >> that is right. to their credit the obama administration in the days up to the election were trying to codify the rules and regulations for making those difficult decisions. however, we are alonging at the possibility of massive defense cuts. we have new personnel, as you suggested, coming in potentially to state, defense, and c.i.a., and we have our whole national security apparatus being overhauled at a time when we are in great peril as reporting from the middle east, particularly gaza strip and israel suggests. >>gregg: president obama, it can be said, has a checkered record on national security. yes, as doug points out, he escalated the drone attacks but, of course, he ignored advance warnings of a terrorist attack in benghazi, ignored the pleas for help, how do you reconcile or explain that unless this is just a conflicted and unsure president? >>guest: well, it is fairly schizophrenic. if you just look at the president's approach on terrorists, right from the beginning of the administration, it is almost like he wanted to bend over backwards to respect the rights of terrorists who were

for the obama administration and its unshakeable support for israel's right to defend defend itself and israel's security. this is the microcosm of what this conflict is about. we're doing our utmost to minimize civilian casualties on the palestinian side. if palestinian civilians are hurt for us it's a defeat. supporters of hamas were giving out candies in the streets to kids to celebrate the bus bombing. >> what does all of this have to do with the ongoing negotiations? secretary clinton has said de-escalation. she'll meet twice with prime minister netanyahu. do you think a de-escalation is possible in the wake of this bus explosion and what we've been told according to the bbc, retaliation with a strike in gaza city? >> de-escalation is not going to be possible if hamas doesn't stop shooting at us. the last eight days, 5.5 million israelis, well over half of our entire population, have been under rocket attack. now they're under bus bombing attack. hamas shows no sign of backing down. yesterday they fired over 200 rockets at israelis, killed 200 people. that's not a good sign for de-escalat
they deserve the same legal rights. the obama administration would not defend that law. the house republicans appointed john clement. many of those cases are under appeal and they will surely decide one of those cases this spring host: is there one more likely than the other? guest: that is an inside baseball question. the problem that arose is that elena kagan was the solicitor general when some of those cases were beginning and she mentioned at her confirmation hearings that she had participated in discussions about one of the cases. i think what the court wants to try to do is find a case where she came later and had no involvement. you want nine justices. they don't want age. you could get a split in the would not decide anything. host: she would be one of the key votes to watch? guest: when it is a close vote, every vote is a key vote. in answer to your question, there are several cases and it is not a matter of a good or bad case. one of the deciding issues will be of justice kagan participated. when eight supreme court struck down an act of congress, they almost always hear the appeal.
that not just you have me on here saying shouldn't you raise taxes, you should ask the obama administration for four years, you've done no entitlement reform. put something on the table. >> i'd like to see how all the negotiations are done. i support that. what's your second thing? >> on c-span, cnn can be there, too. secondly, when it's finished, when it's decided, write it down. put it online for seven days. so the american people can read it. don't t.a.r.p. us again, rush us and say, sign this, sign this. it's really good. let the american people read it. if we do those two things lindsey graham will not be voting for tax increase because he'll be able to find out exactly what's in it and no one will get tricked into thinking there are real spending cuts when there aren't or the tax changes are diminimous when they're not. why do the taxpayers want it open -- >> i would like to see it on cnn and c-span for sure. we always like talking to you about this. grover norquist is going to be talking to piers morgan more time tonight. obviously at 9:00 p.m. eastern time here on cnn. >> soledad? >
is what he said. >> i hope that the u.s. administration, that the obama administration can make a change by saying, look, you have to help without any condition. >> can you, final question, can you see that as playing out as a possible solution in the future? >> i think this gaza crisis was a reminder or a wake-up call for the administration. here it is, the israeli conflict is alive and we have to deal with it. when a cease-fire is reached, when the smoke settles and the dust settles, i think the u.s. will go back to a more serious involvement in the process, trying to bring the parties closer together, perhaps advancing negotiations between israel and the moderates and the palestinian authority. >> dan arbell, scholar for middle eastern policy. we appreciate it this morning. thank you. >> thank you. happy thanksgiving. >> same to you, sir. coming up at 6:30 eastern time, we'll be talking to stuart holiday, the head of the meridian international sent they are a works with the state department. >>> the latest on the breaking news with a bus explosion on tel aviv on a main street in tel a
-stakes administration effort to broker a truce in gaza. the president called israel's prime minister netanyahu and three times called egypt's new president mohamed morsi to ask what it would take to stop the violence. mr. obama then sent secretary of state clinton to the middle east. the violence in gaza has forced the administration back into the middleman role it seemed to abandon last year when two years of work by middle east special envoy george mitchell came up empty. but now under the threat of war the u.s. sees little choice except to step in. secretary clinton will ask the palestinians to stop the rocket attacks and ask israel to offer more hope of a longer term peace agreement. >> the goal must be a durable outcome that promotes regional stability and advances the security and legitimate aspirations of the israelis and palestinians alike. >> reporter: the crucial player now is president morsi of egypt whose islamist government openly supports hamas because the u.s. and israel see hamas as a terrorist organization, morsi is essentially the go-between. this is new ground for both the president a
said. >> president obama came out and defended her. if you want to talk talk to me. she went out on behalf of the administration. don't you put your potential secretary of state or figurehead to and the intelligent questions and come out and provide the information or is she out there like a puppet? >> one would think that machine involved in the intelligence briefing would and the right questions. the president only shows up for half of the intelligence prevings and when he was trying to defend or pick a fight with the republicans over susan rice, he made a statement that she knew nothing about beng f. she doesn't know about benghazi, why trot her out on the sunday shows. this is the wrong answer for secretary of state. hillary clinton's done an exceptional job and the president needs to show he will make a bipartisan play and i think john mccane would be the right person right now. >> that ain't happening but that is it an interesting choice. >> pete had too much turkey yesterday. and iconic roller could i have ther is under water and it may be a tourist attraction. constructio
president. the reality is that they are here in the long game. they will be here long after barack obama leaves the white house. we have to uphold our value, as well as our national interests. and that's going to eye think present a challenge that was tough for the last administration to walk, george w. bush and it's going to be tough for this one to walk. >> eric: when they say egypt goes islamist and the region is going to go islamist and fall in with iran and egypt and israel, big trouble for israel, what is your prediction? >> irany a different story. i don't think you are in danger of creating a little tehran on the nile. but the reality, this is not an arab spring. this is an islamist spring. when fair and free elections are held in this part of the world, it is the most ideological, well-organized and most committed parties that do the best. that happened in palestine, in lebanon and in iraq and it's happening in egypt. we have to figure out a way to keep morsi, with the incentives and dis-incentives we have to push toward a pluralist form of government. i have to actual, eric, it
